Would you like to come and help us out?

We now are looking for someone to help out in September and October.

We are located in Sandspit, on Haida Gwaii, a remote archipelago in the northern part of BC, close to Alaska.

We are a small (5 rooms) and comfortable B&B overlooking a scenic bay in our tiny community (250 residents) and only settlement on Moresby island. Since a few years, we operate a small Hostel within the B&B, just one room, with 3 single beds in.

There are daily flights from Vancouver to Sandspit, where the property is located, and also a ferry coming from Prince Rupert a few times a week.

I am a 39 year old male, originally from France and in Canada since over 10 years. I just became a citizen in 2018. This is now going to be my 10th summer on the islands. I have been and am still a helper myself and have traveled in Canada using various websites. I have also traveled for a few years in Australia and New Zealand, on Working Holiday Visas.
I am a long distance cyclist during the winter months and like to explore Latin american countries and Asia.
I am a former employee of a local boat tour company and former manager of the Sandspit Visitor centre. I am also deeply involved in a number of community projects mostly through the Sandspit Community Society (we have a website), and I organize the Sandspit Wild Harvest Festival each fall.

I have hosted many travelers over the past years. People do not always come through volunteer websites listings, but also by word of mouth. I have hosted people from France, Germany, Japan, Austria, Spain, Taiwan, Australia, Canada (of course), Switzerland, Belgium, Poland, Egypt, the US...
I can host usually only one person at a time in the shoulder season, sometimes couples, and up to 4 helpers in the busy summer months.

Come and visit!
